24 ounces tri-color rotini pasta uncooked

1 pint cherry tomatoes halved

12 ounces sliced pepperoni

1 red onion diced

1 green bell pepper diced

16 ounces mozzarella cheese cubed

1 cup grated parmesan cheese

8 ounces olives sliced

Vinaigrette dressing

1 ½ cups olive oil

½ cup red wine vinegar

2 tablespoons Italian seasoning

2 teaspoons garlic powder

1 ½ teaspoons salt

1 teaspoon pepper

½ teaspoon red pepper flakes


Cook pasta according to package directions for al dente pasta. Drain and rinse with cold water until pasta is room temperature. Place pasta in a large bowl.

Add cherry tomatoes, pepperoni, onion, bell pepper, mozzarella, parmesan, and olives to the bowl. Set aside.

In a separate bowl, add olive oil, vinegar, italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Stir to combine.

Pour vinaigrette over pasta salad, then toss to coat. Refrigerate for 1 hour before serving. Pasta salad will keep for 3-4 days, refrigerated in a sealed container. Pasta WILL continue to soak up the dressing the longer it sits, so it may need a splash of olive oil and vinegar if it has been sitting for several hours.

Enjoy !
